Trezz is so damn smooth in the post. What a player when he's doing what he's good at.

I'd say this is our best win of the season. Our defense looked decent this game.

Gasol, THT, Caruso, Trez & Kuz so good.

First game when AD+Caruso came to really play on defense, and they make everyone else look so much better. Now, I will go to war against anyone who thinks we regressed on defense from 2019-20 season.

Alex Caruso: 22 minutes, 1-5 FG, 4 rebounds, 4 assists, 3 steals, 3 points.

If you didn't watch the game, you would have thought he was terrible. In reality, it's the exact opposite.

Locked in KCP & Caruso, a focused AD and that's a pretty easy win for you.

Good fun game.

There is no quit in Nwaba. Thought he was done after the torn achilles, but he somehow found his way into another rotation and is playing well. Nothing but respect for that guy.

This has been the most perfectly fulfilling game I have seen since game 6 finals.

How did Lakers play Harden? I see he only had 20 but shot 50%.

They played Caruso on him defensively and AC did a great job. He fought through picks, played the P&R perfectly, and contested Harden’s shots .

They came out with a chip on their shoulders right from the start and never let up. I wish they would always play like that. Great showing !

Most impressive win of the season so far, the team played almost a perfect game. However, I don't expect Houston to miss so many open 3s tomorrow.
Arguably the greatest franchise ever

I liked Caruso's defence a lot, but let's face it, Harden looked like he didn't want to be out there. They should just trade him or be stagnant for the duration of his contract.

Good defense but Harden’s head wasn’t in this game.

Good to have the defense of Caruso back. He seems to be the glue defensively together with AD.

Schröder, AC, THT, KCP, WM is a lot of good backcourt defense.

Man, the amount of offensive options Frank has ... PnR with Schröder and AD, high pick n pop with Gasol and LBJ, a triangle set or two for AD’s mid range, Harrell baseline back screen pick n pop, set up any of Kuzma/Schröder/THT/KCP/AD for the corner three, the possibilities on offense are endless ...

Let’s focus on the team defense.
2020-2021
PG: Caruso 18 | Schroeder 22 | THT 8
SG: Pope 20 | THT 16 | Matthews 12
SF: James 30 | Kuzma 12 | Matthews 6
PF: AD 27 | Kuzma 14 | Morrris 5 | Cacok 2
C: M Gasol 18 | Harrell 24 | AD 3 | Kostas 3

Return to Los Angeles Lakers
